Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The River  Garth Brooks

[C]You know a dream is like a rive[C]r ever chang[F/C]in' as it f[C]lows.[C]
And the [F]dreamer's just a vesse[C/E]l  that must [Dm7]follow where it [G]goes.
Trying to [C]learn from wh[F/C]at's behind [C]you[C], and never [Am]knowing what's in sto[F]re
Makes each da[C]y a c[F/C]onstant bat[C]tl[C]e just to [G]stay between the [C]shores
And I will [C]sail [F/C]my   [C]vesse[C]l 'til the [F/C]river runs dry[C].  [C]
Like a [F]bird upon the wi[C/E]nd,  these [Dm7]water's are my s[G]ky.
I'll[Am] nev[G/B]er    [C]reach my [F/C]desti[C]natio[C]n  [F]if I never try.
So, I will [C]sail [F/C]my   [C]vesse[C]l 'till the [G]river runs d[C]ry.

[C]Too many times we stand aside and let the[F/C] water slip [C]away
'Til what [F]we put off 'til to[C/E]morrow has [Dm7]now become to[G]day.
So, don't you [C]sit u[F/C]pon the [C]shorline and [Am]say you're satis[F]fied.
[C]Choose to [F/C]chance the [C]rapids and [G]dare to dance the [C]tide.

[G/B]And there's [Am]bound to be rough wa[F]ters and I [C]know I'll [C/E]take some [F]falls.
But with the [Dm7]Good Lord as my [C/E]captain, I can [F]make it through them all.[Gsus]

Yes, I will [D]sail [G/D]my ve[D]ssel  'til the [G/D]river runs dr[D]y.
Like a [G]bird upon the win[D/F#]d,  these [Em7]water's are my [A]sky.
I'll[Bm] neve[A/C#]r    [D]reach my [G/D]desti[D]nation [G]if I never try.
So, I will [D]sail [G/D]my   [D]vessel 'till the [A]river runs d[D]ry.[Em7]      [D/F#]
[G]Yes, I will [D]sail [G/D]my   [D]vessel 'till the [A]river runs d[G]ry.[A/G]
[G]  'til the river [A/G]runs dry.
